I knew these bioterrorism masks would come in handy someday.
I have these from my days as a nurse.
Old paint brushes sure come in handy.
Polishing.....used red pipe cleaners for polish.
Lubricating......used yellow pipe cleaners for oil.
Used copper wire brush to clean the back felt.
The end results.
It was a lot of work but it's worth it.
I have the keys sitting on top of the piano. I had to glue some of the ivory tops.
After they dry completely I need to start putting the teflon powder into the felt bushings and burnish. Then I can start replacing the keys.
That'll have to wait a day or two until I can recover. Both thumbs feel right now, which I know is a flare up of tendinitis, which will go away shortly. Then it's back to work on this project.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a wonderful day.
